Garena Free Fire is one of the best battle royale games out there. In 2019, it became the most downloaded game globally and also received the “Best Popular Vote Game” award from Google Play Store. From dominating E-sports tournaments to boasting a whopping 80 million daily active users, it seems like there is no stopping Garena Free Fire. Whether you are a newcomer or a seasoned multiplayer veteran, here are some tips and tricks for Free Fire to help ensure that you will be the last one standing.
1. Choose your character
Free Fire is all about giving players choices. Unlike other battle royale games, choosing your character here is not just a cosmetic choice. Each of the selectable characters features a special ability that impacts how you play. Apart from the 2 free characters, there are over 30 paid characters with unique special abilities. Some of our favorite characters are:
Shani is a self-made engineer, and her special ability is the Gear Recycle. This ability restores your armor’s durability after every kill. This means that you can actually get stronger each time you face an enemy. At level 8 every kill restores 20 armor for Shani.
Alok is a DJ who is famous all around the world and his special ability is Drop the Beat. This ability creates a 5-meter aura around the player which increases movement and sprinting speed and also restores HP. Having a healing ability makes Alok a great choice for most players. At Level 8 Alok’s aura increases movement speed by 11% and restores health for 10 seconds.
Joseph is a well-known physicist whose special ability is Nutty Movement. This ability allows him to speed up when taking damage, from both enemies and the zone. At Level 8 Joseph can move 20% faster for 1 second after taking damage. His ability makes him one of the fastest players in the game.
Because of the variety of characters and their unique abilities, you need to spend your money wisely and understand which character and ability you should invest in before making that decision.
2. Choose your weapons
Garena Free Fire allows players to choose from Assault Rifles, Sniper rifles, SMG’s, LMG’s, shotguns, launchers, pistols and even melee and throwable weapons. The game lets you carry 3 guns and a melee weapon, making it necessary for you to have weapons that cover long-range combat, medium-range combat and close-quarter encounters. Every weapon has a set range and damage meter that can help you compare stats. Choose a variety of weapons and be sure to get some practice in with each to understand which guns you prefer.
3. Choose your Gloo Wall
The Gloo wall grenade is a unique gameplay mechanic that can be deployed instantly to give yourself cover. While the Gloo wall can give you temporary defense, it can also be taken down by sniper fire and excessive gunfire. So use the wall as a distraction to move and return fire instead of a defense strategy. You can also deploy the Gloo wall in close quarters to distract your opponent, narrowing their line of sight as you get closer and closer. The vast number of Gloo wall skins to choose from is just the cherry on top of this sundae.
4. Mess around with the settings
Many new players tend to make the classic mistake of jumping into the game without looking at their settings. Your mouse sensitivity, aim assist, and HUD layout all have a large impact on your gameplay. There is no such thing as the best sensitivity setting or recommended HUD layout. Your HUD layout and your game settings should be set to maximize your personal abilities. We recommend drastically raising and decreasing sensitivity and getting some practice in. This will help you understand which settings work best for you. In the same way, try changing the size of the buttons on your HUD to find which size is right. Experiment and adapt to get the best results.
5. Spend some time in the training room
The training mode in Free Fire is divided into three sections: The Target Range, the Social Zone, and the Combat Zone. The target range allows players to refine their shooting, while the social zone focuses on traversal. The combat zone offers players a healthy mix of both. Spending time here allows you to train individual skills without feeling overwhelmed. With over 80 million daily users, getting better at Free Fire requires some dedication. Spend your time training might seem like simple advice, but if you put in the time you can easily find yourself being a step ahead of the average player. Enjoy your next round of Free Fire by putting these tricks and tips into practice and improving your gameplay for good!
